    2023 WCPF Members Exhibition – Advance Notice
    Arrangements for the 2023 WCPF Members Exhibition (MX) are nearly complete, and the entry
    system will be available in January 2023. We’ll send previous entrants an ‘invitation to enter’ email,
    and a link to the entry system will be posted on the WCPF website MX page once the system is open.

    Entry will be open from Monday 7th January 2023 and will close on Saturday 11th March 2023.

    Entry Classes
    The entry classes have changed this year with 3 print classes (Open Colour, Open Mono, Nature) and 3
    digital classes (Open Colour, Open Mono, Nature). The class definitions will be available on the website
    and entry system.

    The exhibition has PAGB Patronage and PAGB Gold, Silver and Bronze medals plus Selector Ribbons will be
    awarded in each class. Highly commended certificates will also be awarded in each class.
    “Best Wildlife” trophies will be awarded in each Nature class (Digital and Print). New for 2023 a “Best
    Creative” trophy will be awarded for the best Creative image in the Open Colour and Open Mono classes.
    The “Margaret Aven” trophy will be awarded for the entrant who gains the most acceptances across all six classes.
    The “Millennium Trophy” will be awarded for the best overall image in the Exhibition.

    Favourite Print
    We are holding a “Favourite Print” lottery. Visitors will vote for their favourite print, and the winner of the lottery receives a copy of the print that they voted for. Note that there a checkbox on the entry form to opt out of the lottery. Also note that there will be no general sale of prints in 2023.

    Exhibition Venue
    The exhibition will be at the Bovey Tracy Golf Club with the excellent facilities that have proved so
    successful over the last few years. The exhibition dates are currently being finalised.

    Print Collection
    Clubs may wish to collect print entries from their members and make a single delivery to their appointed collection point (AES). This will make the process more efficient and effective for club members and the AES. The name & contact details for an entrant’s AES will be notified on completion of the online entry.
    We hope that members of WCPF clubs will continue to support the exhibition and submit their entries in good time. If anything is unclear or if there are any questions, then please get in touch with the Exhibition Secretary by email at
